We may have eaten our entire stockpile of snacks and made it through our Netflix queue, but we're still creating in quarantine.

We’re settled in to our home offices, taking advantage of the nice weather when we can and getting used to our new coworkers (aka pets and kids). But most importantly, we’re still creating great work.

We’re witnessing so many great things right now. Community building. Businesses collaborating. Neighborhood scavenger hunts, driveway art and social-distancing parties. A very real push to shop and eat local. This whole #togetherness thing has been truly inspiring. And has led us to some new partnerships and fun projects.
